A 17-year-old babysitter in Whatcom County, Washington orchestrated a false home invasion along with her 16-year-old boyfriend and another male suspect. After getting 4-year-old Abby out of the house so her friends could do the deed, the babysitter made up a story about two armed black men breaking into the Ferndale home. She went on to say that one of the men looked like Cody Oakes, the next door neighbor.
Oakes, an operations manager for JP Morgan, was arrested and questioned before Abby broke the case open by telling police they had the wrong skin color, the robbers were white. The case began to unravel from there, and the babysitter confessed.
Abby, despite her detective skills, says she would “love to be a doctor.”
